Standard ages 3-6 who have had some experience with the water, and those who can complete all Clamdigger skills
This class is for children who are able to attempt floating on front and back with assistance, or who have been through our beginner swim class. Our goal is to learn proper breath control, float using a barbell or similar flotation tool, jump in the water, and be able to fully submerge head comfortably.
What will they do in class?
Turtles will improve upon skills from the Clamdigger level and will venture deeper into the pool to learn to move themselves using a kick. Turtles will also practice some skills in the deep end of the pool, and learn more independence while swimming.
A successful Turtle will be able to do the following:
Perform a front float while blowing bubbles, with instructor help
Perform a back float while holding a barbell
Kick at least 10 feet on both the front and back using either a foam barbell or kickboard Blow bubbles through nose while submerged
